Lettering artist Yvette Rutledge has developed her own ornamented initial designs for hand-engraved jewelry. The pieces shown are all one of a kind custom sterling silver originals, approximately one inch in diameter.
Hand-engraving tools are precise, and encourage very fine details while requiring extreme patience and control.
Each metal object has particular qualities that affect engraving, like hardness, texture, etc. so that a steel handle on a hunting knife responds differently to the cutting tool than a cast gold ring
At the Center for the Lettering Arts we have begun to make engraved copper plates for printing, which have to be engraved backwards to be printed by the intaglio method.
